My Thoughts On Thanos In The New Avengers Movie

  1. He has been variously described as having godlike powers. In the film he certainly is a formidable character with that infinity gauntlet. But is he really a god?

    This big purple, muscle bound titan is a fictional creation of Marvel. He possesses very human flaws and qualities. He is both selfish and yet is capable of loving others. He can be injured and bleed. Without that infinity gauntlet he can be beat up and killed. He has only his physical strength without that super weapon. So he is not a god, but a pitiable and very flawed character playing god. He does a very poor job at it too. He is capricious and even destroys someone he loves to get that powerful weapon into his hands.

    In contrast the God of the Christian is infinite, perfect and loving. He is not capricious. He is just. He is not the product of some writer either. Rather this universe is the product of His creative activity. He sent his Son to die on our behalf to take away our sin.

    John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.

    I really don't trust Hollywood to get it right, frankly, even though from a technical point of view a lot of movies are impressive.

      Hollywood has been gettin it wrong for a while. I have been buying a lot of Pureflix films lately. I do enjoy them.

      I wish that film classification made it clearer when the actors are going to disrobe and couple; like this, one would know more what to expect, and avoid.

      I do anyway prefer the sort of very traditional characters as in the original 1966 Star Trek: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KMkpk1yahnc

    Great verse from John's Gospel!

    Is the New Avengers anything to do with the old Avengers series?
    1. Grumman Tomcat
      The new avengers does use some of the old characters.

      I remember the old 60s Avengers characters; a bit like the old, original Star Trek. :)

    I know he was talking about Thor, but Cap has this covered...
